JOHN BECKHOUSE FROM QUEANBEYAN IN AUSTRALIA
To Gary - Thanks to your advice - and despite being earlier assured by the Department of Defence that my grandfather, Captain BECKHOUSE had received all of the service medals to which he was entitled, I queried whether he was entitled to any other awards. Lo and behold - yes, he was entitled to the 1939-1945 Star after all .... and I am now going through the hoops to have that issued. Many thanks to Medals Gone Missing for your advice and assistance.

STEVE & NAOMI AGER FROM AUSTRALIA
Gary, thanks. I am sorry for causing you so much angst!!! I reckon you are a brilliant researcher and have hit the nail on the head!! For some reason or another, I didn't think of the Emergency Services, and it makes a lot of sense. Thanks again I really appreciate your time and effort. Please also add me to your mailing list as I think your organization is first class.
